The research formed the basis of a Master of Information Technology in Education degree at the University of Melbourne. The paper examines the physical environment, the thinking behind the research, and the connections between art and computing. Finally, the article presents a portrait of one of the participants, which includes an analysis of one of her compositions. (Contains 4 figures.)
